Sunday 22:  Christian Unity March at 15:00. IPC has historically been an ecumenical congregation, welcoming all of God’s children to join in worship.  On thes  afternoon, we will once again join in the Christian Unity March that will visit three churches, ending up here at IPC.  In this day of division, it’s important we remember what it is that unites us as Christians, the birth we have just celebrated.  There will be joint celebration following the walk.

Monday 23: Uni.Conve meets again. Why not come along for some though-provoking discussions?

Thursday 26: Bibles & Beer at 18:15 is an hour of informal chat.

Mission of the Month

Oasis Belgium/Stop the Traffick

Human trafficking is a grave crime against humanity. It is a form of modern day slavery and a profound violation of the intrinsic dignity of human beings. It is intolerable that millions of fellow human beings should be violated in this way, subjected to inhuman exploitation and deprived of their dignity and rights. This outrage should concern each one of us, because what affects one part of humanity affects us all. Virtually every part of this world is touched in some way by the cruelty and violence associated with this criminal activity. If we are to combat this evil then we must work together to prevent the crime, support the survivors and prosecute the criminals. The knowledge that churches have of their local communities puts them on the frontline in this campaign.”                                                       The Archbishop of Canterbury, the most Reverend Justin Welby

For the last few years, IPC directly joined with the many who have campaigned against Human Trafficking around the Globe.  Within Belgium  there is an active group of workers and volunteers called Oasis Belgium/Stop the Traffick, who have joined together to combat Trafficking in many ways.  As part of a previous IPC mission campaign, we collected sufficient funds to build an exterior terrace/deck for the Koffie Klap program, situated in Antwerp.  This project gives new hope and job training to women coming out of the exploitation of the sex trade.

This year IPC will once again collect funds to support the Oasis/Stop the Traffick project. To learn more about just exactly how we are going to be involved, join us for worship on 8 January when Phil Lane, director, will be with us.

Special Need!

We have been contacted by Serve the City and others working with refugees and the homeless in our community.  With the significant change in the weather, there is an urgent need for blankets and sleeping bags.  If you have something to donate, please contact Pastor Murray.  Thanks!
